I'm fairly sure that Solaris uses exactly one process consisting
of multiple threads.  I checked one of the processes with
ps -L -p <pid> and it showed 9 lightweith processes in that
one unix process.

It looks like all but one of the Unix processes is rogue.

Now to find out which one ...

I'll try your patch and try and let you know how it goes.

Thanks for your reply Daniel!
